Sisters on the Planet: Fighting Climate Change

From Oxfam America:

 

As obvious as it sounds, climate change affects everybody. But climate change is already having a disproportionate impact on people in poor communities, and it’s hitting women hardest.

 

Oxfam Is calling for climate change policies at every level to be gender-sensitive so that they fairly address both women’s and men’s needs and interests. Only this approach will be effective in building communitywide resilience to climate change, reducing gender inequalities, and promoting development.

 

It’s not the easiest idea to understand, so to help explain we’ve made these short films about women, in both rich and poor countries, who are determined to do whatever they can to put a stop to climate change.

 

Watch them and become aware of the impact our changing climate is having on people’s lives. And be inspired to join the fight against climate change too.

It’s time for you to tell your story. So talk to people about Sisters, get them to do the same, and you’ll line up alongside Sahena, Sharon, Muriel, and Martina in the growing ranks of people taking on climate change.
